Abstract: The liquid drop model describes the bulk properties of nuclei. However there are significant deviations from this near closed shells underestimates the binding energies. It is therefore necessary to include a correction that takes into account of this phenomenon in order to accurately calculate ,for instance ground state masses. In the present work we have calculated the shell corrections for all possible nuclei. Seeger introduced a semi empirical mass formula. We have taken shell corrections term from this formula. Inclusion of this term brings the binding energies very close to experimental values.
